Taco Cheese Fries!

Sorry if this is making you hungry, you're right I am not sorry! I love making things that get you into the kitchen & start cooking! These fries are crispy on the outside, mashed potato soft on the inside with just the right amount of spice, for us anyway. You choose the heat factor for your taste buds. Add some ooey gooey cheese & you have some terrific taters!
4 Large Idaho Baking Potatoes SCRUBBED clean!
2 TBS Vegetable Oil
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning I used Mild 1 OZ. packet
2 Cups of your favorite Shredded Cheese 

Slice clean dry potatoes into wedges about 1/4 inch up to 1/2 inch thick.
Place oil in a deep bowl & stir in the packet of taco seasoning. Stir in 2 to 3 wedges of potato at a time & coat all sides well. Place slices on a rimmed baking sheet. Once all slices are coated & on the sheet bake in a 425 degree preheated oven until potatoes are crisp & fork tender. Mine were done at 25 minutes but start checking at around 15 minutes of cooking time. you have to know your oven & how fast or slow it cooks. Mine is a slow oven. Once potatoes are tender & crisp. Spread the shredded cheese evenly over the slices & return pan to the oven until cheese is melted about 5 minutes! Again know your oven & judge the time accordingly! THESE ARE FUN FRIES & ADULTS AS WELL AS KIDS WILL LOVE THEM!
